For the past two Saturdays, Rob, Auntie Lo Lo and Jack have gone to lil kickers soccer for Jack and he LOVES it! Auntie played soccer at Pepperdine so she was so excited to come join the fun! Jack walked on the field, listened to the teachers, followed directions and had a blast. Auntie said he ran the entire time and was super competitive. This week the teacher told Rob he should move up to the older class because he is advanced....auntie is soooo proud! This is such a wonderful activity and with all the things Jack is involved I think this is his favorite!!!

So Fast

Zoe's newborn picture
Beautiful Zoe at 9 Months

Handsome Jack Jack at 2 1/2

Jack Allan at 2 days old!!!

I went to visit my friend Shelby and her new beautiful baby girl Rylee Grace. It was such treat to hold such a sweet, beautiful, innocent new miracle. I know Zoe is only 9 1/2 months but holding a newborn is such a joy, and when its not yours you don't have to worry about feedings, or diaper changes or anything at all. I just held her, smelled her, kissed her and loved her up! It's amazing how a newborn can give me baby fever....don't worry once i really thought about it I came back to reality. What i keep thinking about is how time goes so quickly. I remember being in the hospital with Jack like it was yesterday and now he is 2 1/2 and Zoe is such a big girl already, crawling, pulling herself up, sitting in a high chair. I'm so trying to savor every minute with them. There are days that i wish they were older so my life would be easier but I always try and remember that this time is going to fly by! Rob and i were talking the other night about Jack going to college and we both got teary eyed, it's 15 years away but we never want our baby to leave! So tonight when I was putting Zoe to bed I rocked her a little longer and just stared at her beautiful face knowing that too quickly this time will pass!!

Today, Rob and I celebrating our five year wedding anniversary! It has gone by so fast! We have been together for almost 11 years! Since getting married, I started teaching, we bought our house, bought our dog...Sophie, quit teaching to be a mommy, Rob got a new job, had Jack and had Zoe!!!! WOW! I would say that's a lot in 5 years! I couldn't ask for a better partner in crime, best friend, household comedian, daddy to my kids and husband!! To many many more years filled with memories, laughter and love! I love you to the moon and back Robbie!!! xoxo

After Dinner...

Lately after dinner we have been going to the pool for some fun! Sometimes Zoe and I stay home but tonight we all went. At the beginning of the summer he was very cautious, liked to watch everyone else, but now he loves it and doesn't want to get out. On Monday, Jack came home from the pool telling me he needed goggles like the big kids...so today at Target he got his goggles. They are so goofy and cute!! I just want to eat him up!!!

A day at the beach...

We spent the day in Ventura with our friends Leanne, Kevin, Jack and Charlee. Leanne's mom lives right on the beach so it was so nice being able to come and go back to the house as we needed! It was a great day!!

4th of July

We had a great fourth...we spent the day down in Orange County at my parents swim club. The kids had so much fun swimming, playing basketball, playing in the playground, eating yummy snacks and beautiful fireworks. We spent the day with my parents, family friends and some of my wonderful friends from high school!!

Tie Dye Fun

We tie dyed shirts last week with Leanne and her kids...they turned out way better than what we expected! SO FUN!!

9 months...

A few weeks ago we were at my friend Shelby's house who is a wonderful photographer. We decided to take some pictures of Zoe...I love how these pictures turned out!! Now that she's crawling it was hard us to keep her in one spot, but Shelby did a great job! Thanks Shelby!!

So now that Zoe is 9 months she is crawling, pulling herself up, just started waving yesterday! She loves to play with Jack, still likes to be held a lot, likes to eat big people food rather than baby food and is still a BAD sleeper. She is so sweet and I love, love, love her smile! I love her wet kisses and her hugs!!! This is going soooooo fast!! I love you Zoe Bear!!
